doc-rst: Reduce CSS padding around Field
Right now any ":Field Name: Field Contents" lines end up with significant padding due to CSS from the "table" CSS which rightly needs padding to make tables readable. However, field lists don't need this as they tend to be stacked together. The future heavy use of fields in the parsed MAINTAINERS file needs this cleaned up, and existing users look better too. Note the needless white space (and misalignment of name/contents) between "Date" and "Author": This patch fixes this by lowering the padding with a more specific CSS.
